This easy moong dhal(paasi parupu)kurma recipe is from my aunt. There is no grinding part at all, its so easy and simple still its lemony flavour adds to the taste.
Cinnamom - 1/2 inch piece
Cardomom - 1
Cloves - 2
Moong Dhal - 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium size
Tomato - 1
Green Chilli - 1
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Garlic - 3 to 4 chopped
Lemon - 1 medium size
Oil - 3 tsp
1. Dry roast moong dhal for few mins till nice aroma comes. Pressure cook it with 1/4 cup of water till mashy and keep aside.
2. In a kadai, heat oil, add cinnamom, cloves and cardomom and saute well.Add chilli, garlic and onion and keep sauting till onions are fried well.
3.Now add tomato and fry for 2mins, add turmeric and chilli powder.
